Default Re: How High Can I get this Overclock?

But not nearly to the degree that raising the vCore does. I overclock intensively myself and have always found that increasing FSB frequencies only minutely affects the temperature. The large gains are due to increase of voltages.

Well, I saw when I overclocked it to 3Ghz that it didn't increase the temperature much at all. Voltage on the other hand increased it hugely.

And as for Thelis's increase the FSB by increments of 10Mhz, That's a bit too much.

I got a can o air and cleaned the CPU heatsink out. Ran Prime95 for about 8 minutes till one core hit a failure.

The good news however is, because I cleaned out the computer, my highest temperature is now 53C's!!!!!

I'm going to restart it again, increase the vCore about two increments (Might hit 1.5V) and raise the Bus Speed another Mhz.

Is it worth it to add more voltage to a setting of 1.520V to get 3.080Mhz stable?
